It was an evening filled with beautiful music and angelic voices. Trinity Church was filled to capacity as we enjoyed The Spirit of Advent Concert presented by the Community Choir last Friday evening. There were many highlights to the evening, including a flute prelude by Debbie Twiddy and Anne Archer, and rousing violin and piano accompaniments by Jim Coles and Marg Smith. Kudos to the choir who spent many long nights preparing for this spectacular evening.
